Honesty: Leverage Your Voice

“Honesty: Self-reflection is an opportunity to acknowledge and honor your truth. Give voice to your genuineness and share your authenticity with those around you.” Honesty begins as an inner experience. Knowing yourself allows you to articulate what you need, want, and feel to yourself first. Admitting your truth sometimes feels liberating but can also feel painful. The pain may intensify during the holidays, too, when family members and their expectations clash with what feels important to you. Honoring your truth will lead you through all difficulties.

Tapping into your genuineness allows you to combine honesty with respect for others. Full disclosure might not feel kind or necessary. Genuine disclosure allows compassionate honesty for both you and the listener. It communicates you care enough to take care of yourself without intent to harm another. It also helps to remember Brené Brown’s perspective you must determine who merits receiving your heartfelt truth since one level of disclosure does not fit all. Sometimes honesty requires you to say only enough to attend to your needs.

Facing a hard truth usually means you give up something. Maybe you have to give up your identity as a nice person, a good child, or the one willing to sacrifice. Maybe you give up the fantasy your father, mother, brother, or sister (your pick!) will ever reform, play nice, or reciprocate. Every time my husband visited his great-grandmother she complained he never visited. How lovely and yet impossible it would have been for her to instead say, “I love it when you visit because I enjoy our time together so much!” Like most people, she behaved consistently throughout her lifetime which in her case prevented close relationships with her family.

Honesty releases energy spent avoiding the truth. Sometimes just admitting something to yourself brings relief. If you can then communicate your perspective authentically, more energy gets freed. Plus as you strengthen your own authentic self, you can develop neutrality toward others’ reactions and behaviors while still acting on your own behalf, further conserving mental and emotional energy.

Do you find it harder to be honest with yourself or with others? Do you feel honesty requires full disclosure?

The honesty quote came from The Original Angel Card Book – Inspirational Messages and Meditations by Kathy Tyler and Joy Drake.

Like most people, I only take an extended rest when forced.

Many of my readers and clients learned to prioritize others over themselves. Even when offered assistance they may decline it, feeling they must sacrifice for the “greater good.” Yet sacrifice and greater good oppose each other.

With every thought you have, word you speak, and action you take, you obey something or someone. When you obey yourself and not external authority or outdated beliefs, your true self is the part of you in charge.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a typical Energy Quartet session go?

We open with a 45 minute or so Akashic Records consultation. The revealed themes, patterns, and disharmonies drive the table work in conjunction with your "pulses," body reading, and my intuitive insights. A follow-up e-mail documents what occurs during the energy work and includes customized self-helps.

What should I wear to receive table work?

In this work, you remain fully clothed. Just wear whatever will feel comfortable while lying on my massage table. If it's a remote session, I'll ask you to rest while I send energy.

How do I prepare for a session?

Please consider the personal or interpersonal disharmony that led you to me and how you would like it to shift. During the session, we'll explore and address the origins and drivers of each "project."

Are the Akashic Records predictive?

No, the records aren’t a good resource for predictions. If there’s something you hope will happen, the records might reveal a series of necessary steps to reach your desired outcome but not the timing. For predictions, please consult a good psychic or astrologer!

Why can't children receive Akashic Records consultations?

Minors are under their parents' legal and energetic jurisdiction until they are 18, regardless of their maturity level.

NEED HELP CHOOSING A SESSION?

The greatest benefit occurs when I incorporate all four modalities I practice. The option without the Akashic Records is appropriate for children under 18 who cannot receive readings. A stand-alone reading can bring insight and healing but does not involve my direct interaction with your energetic and physical bodies like my other practices.

Do you record Akashic Records consultations?

No, but you are welcome to record sessions yourself.

Why do self-helps?

Self-helps, both from Jin Shin Jyutsu and the Embodied Energy System, support your continued harmony, accelerate your evolution, and empower you. Plus they make you sparkly!
